and were retired In one, two, three

their half. In the second the visitors
managed to get one runner across
on an error by Lewis and a double
sort of apathetic feeling seemed to
take hold of Maupinltes, and as a
consequence tne few games played
proved losing venture. The same
condition exists this season. Munftg

teams to play against Maupin. These

Immediately after the program

will be accorded the floor and for a
time will indulge in those dances
popular in by-gone days. An old-
time fiddler, D. D. Nelson, will dis
course the music for this. When tht
pioneers have had their fling the
young folks will be given a chance
to display their wares as modern
dancers, and for this Rorick's or
